The Arsenal fans were accused of having no class by Rio Ferdinand after the match against Manchester United on Saturday. In doing so, Ferdinand reinforced one of the reasons that Arsenal fans, along with most others, don’t like United. Hypocrisy.
Ferdinand’s ill chosen words were because of the away fans giving Robin van Persie some abuse. Has he never heard Tevez getting stick? It is part of football. Everybody knew that van Persie would get stick from the Arsenal fans after he chose to abandon us for our hated rivals.
Okay, some of the chants were not nice, but Arsene Wenger has had to put up with years of taunting from the United fans because of some stupid internet rumour nearly 20 years ago, with no truth to it. So Ferdinand thinks it’s fine for United fans to call Wenger a paedophile for 16 years does he? Really classy Rio.
It just seems to be the way with United. They have Ashley Young flinging himself to the ground week in, week out and then Ferguson and Jonny Evans stating that Torres should have been sent off despite proof that Evans had clipped him.
Don’t even get me started on Fergie time and penalties. Evra claiming that Wilshere was trying to injure him when he was obviously going for the ball is typical. I wonder if they actually believe what they are saying, or if they just do it to wind people up. It’s worked on me, anyway.
